The North Gordon Road house is the former home of Marla and Curtis Woodhouse. The 1950’s modern house was extensively renovated with the original character preserved and enhanced. Six hundred square feet of conditioned living space was added along with another 1000 square feet of covered porches for outdoor living. The goal was to expand interior spaces to create a strong and usable connection with the outdoors. The completed home now has a casual elegance that allows for both convenient day-to-day living and fabulous entertaining.
Working with EDSA and Harper Downie Creative Architecture, Woodhouse Architecture helped to develop a cohesive identity for this luxury, mixed-use development, located in The Bay of Kotor in southwestern Montenegro. Aeriel renderings were in collaboration with D.E. Jamieson.
AgencyNet was a highly creative, internet-based advertising and branding group with forty-five Florida based team members. The firm acquired a vacant water front building originally intended to house a maritime museum. They requested a whimsical yet functional makeover that would accommodate their growing ranks. The space was re-imagined as a sort of abstracted garden folly populated with various visual and physical points of intruige.
The South Miami house was designed for a family with strict budgetary requirements and a need to maximize the spacial qualities of a 2400 square foot home. A lofty central cupola space serves as the main living area and acts to create distinct bedrooms for the parents and childeren.
A modest 1940s cottage was redesigned to maximize the water front setting and include a variety of new spaces. A pool and guest house were added and the room layouts were reworked to allow for a dramatic entry sequence through a gated sculpture garden.
The Aqua Vista house was a well situated but unimaginative residential property in need of substantial updating. The general layout and structure of the existing house was preserved while a sense of warmth and accessibility was introduced. Interior and exterior spaces were ceonceived and united through materiality and design.
An open airy feel and natural materials were desired for the interior of this condo on the beach in Fort Lauderdale. We took this project from concept design through to turn key construction.
Developed and created in collaboration with Friedmutter Group, Las Vegas, these early concept images were design explorations to be presented for client review and approval. The project, a major casino in Macau, is now completed and built, largely as it was originally conceived.
An existing warehouse was converted into a working automobile showroom garage with an office, conference area, and full blown man cave. The owner, an avid racing enthusiast, requested a man cave for relaxing and reviewing race highlights. An existing storage mezzanine above the office was outfitted with all the comforts necessary for toweling off after a long day of working on cars. Naturally, it included a fully restored and functioning Irish Pub bar and pool table, both of which were left behind (in disrepair) by the previous warehouse owner. Design Inspiration was drawn from the owner's beautiful and eclectic car collection, which included several unique vintage models. Bespoke custom concrete and steel furniture was design by Woodhouse Architecture.
A series of concept sketches for the redesign of an existing casion in Asia. Working alongside The Friedmutter Group, Woodhouse Architecture produced a series of sketches that conveyed general creative direction and conceptualization for key spaces throughout the project.
A series of loose concept sketches and watercolor renderings was developed and created in conjunction with landscape architects, EDSA. Various spaecs and amenities were explored and refined within the context of an ultra high-end luxury condominium project to be located in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.
Aerial views of several new town developments which were based upon land use plans and designs produced by EDSA. Architectural character and landscaping concepts were established and illustrated as the images were produced.
An old warehouse was converted to a new headquarters for this growing event planning company. A creative relaxed work environment was desired. The company’s dynamic brand colors of aqua and red were used as a central concept for the special elements in the design. A meandering awning of aqua starts on the exterior of the building, providing sunshade and then enters the building flowing through the workspace in the form of additional acoustical panels to help absorb the energetic phone conversations of the main work space. The punched openings randomly sprinkled across the façade echo the movement of this young staff and show up again on the interior in the custom cubical separation walls. Smaller red awnings serve to shade the south facing windows and a red cube houses the break room in the middle of the main workspace. Natural wood trims provide warmth.
Loose concept sketches were created with Barmello, Ajamil & Partners to study and present different design options for a multi-functional adaptation of an existing pier and ajacent park.
Working from a pre-established land use plan, Woodhouse Architecture developed an architectural character and identity for this port-side mixed use community in Tallinn, Estonia.
